About Me

I often find myself working in various places with a myriad of organisms. Every now and then I am part of or witness a spectacular display of the natural world that I feel should be shared with whoever will listen or watch.  The primary purpose of the Aspiring Ecologist is to share these sites and wonders in order to build greater understanding and appreciation for the landscape and ecology that is all around us. 


I recently completed my Master's degree at Montana State University in the Ecology Department, under Robert Garrott.   My project focused on developing a habitat model for mountain goats in the greater Yellowstone area.  I am now on board with the Zambian Carnivore Programme to help understand, create awareness, and conserve the large mammal predators of African ecosystems.
